U.S. Congressman Eni Faleomavaega once again suggested to nominate Nursultan Nazarbayev for the Nobel Peace Prize, Tengrinews.kz reports from the anti-nuclear conference in Astana.

“Last year we have already celebrated the 20th anniversary of the brave step made by President Nazarbayev. At the parliament meeting on March 7, 2012 the people of the Marshall Islands adopted a resolution calling to award President Nazarbayev with the Nobel Peace Prize in commemoration of the victims and the survivors of the nuclear tests. President of the Marshall Islands noted that by then the Nobel Committee had awarded only those who inspected nuclear tests sites or talked about the necessity of cooperation. That’s why I join the people and the parliament of the Marshall Islands and call everyone to do the same today and get the Nobel Committee to grant this honor to President Nazarbayev,” the U.S. Congressman said.

Deputy of Japanese parliament Hiroyuki Moriyama declared his intention to nominate Nursultan Nazarbayev for the Nobel Peace Prize at anti-nuclear rally in Semei on August 28.

As for the U.S. Congressman Eni Faleomavaega, he already made this suggestion during last-year’s anti-nuclear forum.

Congressman Faleomavaega has been representing the territory of American Samoa in the United States Congress since 1989. Re-elected in November, 2010 to a twelfth term by the people of American Samoa, Faleomavaega is the longest serving and only Samoan in the U.S. Congress.

Faleomavaega is a member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs and the House Committee on Natural Resources. He is the first Asian Pacific American ever to Chair the Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Asia and the Pacific and now serves as Ranking Member.
